Old Time Workshops Tunebook

Old Time Workshops Tunebook

I was introduced to American old time music during the 1970s when I was a teenager in Edinburgh. At that time there was a small but enthusiastic group of musicians playing this wonderful music, and it started a lifelong passion. Since then I have conducted a number of workshops exploring this music, and spreading the word. Contained within this book are some of the tunes and songs I have used over the years in these workshops, and it is my hope that they will inspire you to play seek out more. Enjoy the collection, enjoy the music.
